Tire/Wheel Confirmation

Hello all.

I just spent the last few hours pouring over the database, trying to figure out a decent setup for my 69 Malibu. I was wondering if anyone can confirm fitment of what I settled on? The suspension is effectively stock, but it will be completely upgraded this winter...I'm still trying to decide on the specifics.

Re: Tire/Wheel Confirmation

The rear combo will work fine. On the front, I would go with a 255/40/18, instead. Trying to run a 27" tall front tire, with that wheel width and offset, could get tight, clearance-wise, especially if you decide to lower the car, later.
